Calling all Marvel fans from generations. Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes has made its home in Seattle, Washington, and we couldn’t be happier. 80 years of Marvel is wowing Seattle in this new exhibit at the Museum of Pop Culture.
Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes
I recently had an afternoon to be captivated by Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes that is on display at the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle April 21, 2018 – January 6, 2019. Literally, there are 80 years of Marvel history breathing within these walls.
During our sneak peek of this exhibit, our tour guide was Benjamin Saunders, Chief Curator. You could sense his passion and intimate value of this Marvel showcase. According to Benjamin Saunders, it took just over a year to curate all of the material that you will have a chance to see at Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes. Indeed a labor of love.
Watch this quick walk-through of the exhibit:
Each section of this exhibit flows into the next seamlessly. It isn’t often you see such a perfect marriage of the original comics all the way to the costumes from the films. The Marvel Universe is vast but the Museum of Pop Culture, SC Exhibitions, and Marvel Entertainment have brought it all together in a space that will mystify your imagination.
This is the largest exhibit ever staged at the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle, WA, featuring more than 300 original artifacts in a 10,000 square-foot exhibition. After our tour, I lingered for quite some time simply taking in everything this exhibit has to offer.
Take a moment to listen to the overhead music and immerse yourself in not only the memorabilia but the connections and impact on real-world issues like gender, race, and mental illness that these super heroes have brought us through. Marvel comics have literally shared stories and hope from generation to generation.
Every Marvel fan needs to come and immerse themselves in this nearly once in a lifetime experience. Life-size scenes, iconic costumes, rare comics, and artwork including original art for Spider-Man’s origin story; it is all here. Become interactive with photo ops with classic characters and a digital feature that will literally transform you into Iron Man on screen.
Assemble in Seattle with 80 years of Marvel at your fingertips. Both comic and film fans alike will be taken back with the chance to see things that might never be seen again from Marvel collector archives. On the heels of the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes is something you do not want to miss.
